Melges 24 Lenny EST790

June 21, 2016 - Helsinki, Finland - Finnish Open Nationals were held over the June 17-19 weekend. Superb heavy weather sailing conditions at Ytterskär - SW 8-11 m/s, big waves, "some rain showers". And most of all Lenny EST790 helmed by Tõnu Tõniste continued the dominance taking the gun in all of final day's three races. So winning seven races out of eight races. Phenomenal upwind and downwind speed with superb boat handling was too much to the others.
